tii alternator (different factory offering?)


Recommended Posts

Did the factory ever install a different alternator on the tii's (than the standard low-mounted unit)?

I ran across a photo in the Blue Book on page 11-53/5 (10.73 Alteration) related to replacing the coolant hoses. The picture illustrates the warm-up coolant hose on the KF pump. A high-mounted alternator is clearly shown with a short metal bracket securing the top alternator tab to the unused stud on the aluminum timing cover (just below the KF pump). I've wondered what that stud was for - but now I know.

Does anyone have more info on this "alternate" alternator? The battery and tray would seem to be right in the way.

Below is a photo of the unused stud on my car.

this is just a guess but, this engine was

used in other car bodies and the picture

may have come from something like

a 2000/1800 tiilux from 1966 or 67. you are

right about the battery tray.

great piece of sluething.

good luck,

I searched the web this morning for "2000tii" and found these pics on a German-only site. I cannot zoom in close on the see-thru car picture to see the details, but the engine pic from their site shows the "standard" tii alternator location.

The site also mentions a 45 amp alternator (std. for tii).

Maybe another FAQ'r has a good picture of the 4-door engine bay.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
